Letters of Recommendation


July 25, 2021

When asking for a letter of recommendation, be it for an academic program or a job, ask yourself a few questions:

The better the answers to the above, the more likely the person's letter of recommendation can have the details to be effective for you.

If, after the above questions, you think I might be a good fit to write a letter for you, please send ask me via email. I am generally happy to write letters or fill out the surveys requested by some programs.

To help me be more effective, request the following information from you:

  1. Current transcript

  2. Current Resume or C.V.

  3. A short paragraph on your career goals and interests and why applying to the program is a good fit for you.

  4. A link to the program website

  5. The expected timing of your application.

  6. Links to your personal webpage, GitHub site, and LinkedIn profile if they exist.

I will let you know if I am able to support your request.

Please keep my up to date on your progress and I will let you know when I have responded to inquiries from the programs.
Good Luck!
